Popping Filter Effect?

I recorded a rap artist yesterday with a serious P problem, he POPs the hell out of those Ps regardless of my pop filter.

Is there any plugin or effect I can throw on his vocals to calm the strength of his Ps?

Move the pop filter back and make sure it's not attached to the same stand as the mic (the stand will act as a transducer).

Have you already tried differnt microphone positions (not directly in front of the mouth. little bit lower/higher off-axis)

You can feel the blast of air by your hand. Hold your flat hand 10 inches before your mouth while saying some p-words. Move your hand down and to the side. You will find a position where the p-air is much less powerful. That would be a good position to reduce the p-noise.

no i have never even heard of not rapping directly into the mic. i read that some singer do that for doubles but i didn't know some rappers do it too.

the pop filter on a different stand, that's new, i've never heard of that neither. when you say move it back, you mean further away from the mic right?

if retracking isnt possible, volume automation or possibly dynamic eqing can help.

It CAN be editted out but it isn't perfect. It CAN be automated out but again isn't perfect. I would try retracking if possible, if not try the first two methods I suggested. If you need someone to do it I am available for a cost.
